Comfort Food Brownies

Do you like brownies? I do, especially when they are from scratch, with real chocolate or chocolate without sugar, eggs, milk and butter. Brownies fall into the category of “comfort food” for me; I can not even think of the calories when I like those hot squares in the oven. My mother’s brownie recipe is still one of my favorites; I remember her taking a full spoon of cacao from the can, leveling with a knife and repeating the process with another 9 tablespoons in total.

Sometimes my mom would fry the brownies with a thick creamy chocolate glaze or chocolate topping with a few drops of mint flavor added to the butter mixture, but often did not cool them; just sprinkled powdered sugar on them. For a special effect, mom would cover the squares with a paper rug before sprinkling them with the powdered sugar.When she lifted the rug, it was revealed an lace design that turned the brownies into edible works of art. That is why brownies are definitely one of my favorite baked comfort foods.

Another brownie recipe I like to make requires sugar-free chocolate and can be made with or without walnuts, according to personal preferences. These brownies are moist, rich and delicious. I hope you have the opportunity to try these brownie recipes soon; I’m sure you will not be disappointed with the results.
